20mph Speed Limit Policy Approach. pdf icon PDF 331 KB

In May 2011 the new Council Administration was elected with a commitment to implement 20mph speed limits on residential roads across the city. In order to deliver this commitment a new policy approach is required. The proposed policy is attached as an annex to this report for the Cabinet Member’s consideration.

 

Additional documents:

Decision:

RESOLVED:                That a policy approach to delivering 20 mph speed limits across the city be agreed.

 

Reason:                        To provide a consistent and transparent approach to implementation.

 

RESOLVED:                That the provisional programme for roll out and therefore the response to the petitions in relation to implementation be agreed.

 

Reason:                        So that residents can be made aware of the order of delivery and enable the petitions to be considered as part of a wider area rather than new or extensions to an existing scheme.

 

RESOLVED:                That larger villages be included in the roll out but that implementation in the smaller villages be delayed until further in the year.

 

Reason:                        To enable evidence to determine whether a signed only limit or another traffic management approach is most appropriate in the small villages.

 

RESOLVED:                That the progress on the South Bank scheme be noted and that the trial in Murton Village be put on hold until additional funding can be identified.

 

Reason:                        To enable the programme to trial affordable additional speed reduction measures that would be replicable across the city and that also work to reduce average speeds close to 20mph.

Minutes:

 

The Cabinet Member for City Strategy considered a report which asked him to agree to a policy approach for 20mph speed limits, a provisional city wide programme of 20mph speed limits on residential roads, and note the progress made on two pilot schemes.

 

RESOLVED:                That a policy approach to delivering 20mph                               speed limits across the city be agreed.

RESOLVED:                That larger villages be included in the roll out but that implementation in the smaller villages be delayed until further into the process.

 

Reason:                        To enable evidence to determine whether a signed only limit or another traffic management approach is most appropriate in the small villages.

 

RESOLVED:                That the progress on the South Bank scheme be noted and that the trial in Murton Village be put on hold until additional funding can be identified.
